I was told days before of the festival about a band called Lüger. Its music was on Bandcamp, so I was able to have a look and see that it was an interesting
band. I didn’t have almost time to listen to it, so I went to the concert willing to listen to their work directly in live.
I had to get out of Anna Calvi concert, because the two performances were at the same time. But I have to say that in this kind of festivals is in the small
stages where you can find nice surprises and something was telling me that this band could be one. So regretting it very much I slipped from the infernal sun of the TVE stage to get into a room
that was a real hell.
The heat was stifling, but without thinking too much I moved through the crowd to arrive right in front of the stage, at the feet of the band. And there I stayed, petrified.
I do not only don’t regret to don’t have listened that album before, but I think that it was even a luxury and a blessing to don’t have done it, because the impact was brutal. Without doubt and from the very beginning of me being there I realized that it was quite different to anything that I had listened before.
I'm not very keen of experimental bands, but the truth is that from Damo Suzuki to Lüger, this year my opinion on the genre has been completely demolished.
Could it be that until then I had not listened a good thing?
Lüger's music is complex, hypnotic and very rich. His live is sometimes a true spectacle of suffering because of the total dedication and commitment from every member of the band.
I think I could be hours talking about what I saw and listened, but it is better to listen to music than reading it, so I leave the video of their entire performance. Of course, if you were not there you missed the best concert of the festival. Lüger, LÜGER from now on because they make MUSIC with capitals, were undoubtedly the best band. And I won’t retract from this.
